Red Sox 2B Pedroia (knee, ankle) out of lineup again

The near hit-by-pitch came two games after Machado injured Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia on a slide at second base while breaking up a double play in the series opener.

"He's not trying to hit Manny in the head", Pedroia told reporters after the game.

Boston Red Sox pitcher Matt Barnes was ejected from Sunday afternoon's game against the Baltimore Orioles for throwing at third baseman Manny Machado. "That's a mishandled situation". "Um, I'm sorry that it kind of ended up that high and fortunately it didn't not hit him but I think he's got every right to be mad that that one got loose".

"They think I'm the villain". "I love playing against him".

This is the slide from Machado on Pedey. I got three kids. If I slid into third base and got Manny's knee, I know I'm going to get drilled.

But Orioles first baseman Chris Davis thought the fastball was intentionally directed at Machado's head.

There's a four-game set starting May 1 between these two at Fenway Park, and the reset button should be hit before then. "All I know was I was trying to go up and in, trying to get some weak contact with (Adam) Jones on first. I know that and you know that".

"I was really impressed with the courage that our guys showed today because they all, believe me, trust me, wanted to do something about it. Takes a lot more sometimes to do that", Showalter said.

The text apology must have resonated with Pedroia because he was seen mouthing "It's not me" toward Machado when Boston manager John Farrell was arguing Barnes' ejection. The Orioles have done it twice - both times by Mancini and Jonathan Schoop, and both times against the Red Sox.

GAUSMAN ROCKED: As this season began, Kevin Gausman looked as if he was ready to take a big step forward.

"Obviously, putting yourself in a hole right out of the gate is not how you want to start off a game". On April 13, he allowed one run on five hits in six innings against Toronto. "Luckily, my second at-bat, he just left one up that I put a good swing on". The under is also 8-1-1 in the last 10 meetings between these two eams, is 4-0-1 in Gausman's last five home starts versus the Red Sox, and 5-1-1 in his last seven outings versus Boston overall. His consistency has not resulted in a gaudy batting average, as he's batting.269, but he has three home runs, nine runs scored and eight RBIs in 66 at-bats.

For the first six innings, Rodriguez was hardly ever around the plate, firing a steady dose of mid-90s fastballs and high-80s changeups - a pitch he throws better than most - all around the outskirts of the strikezone.
